I seem to remember ... a long long time ago.
It was possible to use an unzipped open-doc file (a directory) as a zipped
So it was somehow possible to start-up open/libreoffice using as starting
point one of the files in the unzipped directory.

The .odt file can be opened with a zip file viewer. Within the .zip file
there will be a file 'content.xml'. That file contains the actual text of
the original document with xml tags.

To reduce it to only the original text with no xml tags would require
stripping the tags. Don't know if there is a tool available to do that.

As for opening 'content.xml' directly in Open/LibreOffice that could be
accomplished by right clicking the 'content.xml' file, selecting the "Open
with..." option from the context menu and then selecting the desired
application. Remember however the xml tags are included in the document and
will be displayed in the Open/LibreOffice document.
